Most likely "Norfolk Southern"

Landrum Kelly
Thanks, Matt, but it goes back to before Norfolk and Southern was created from a consolidation of Southern Railway and Norfolk and Western. I am thinking that it might go back to the days of either Seaboard Railroad or Atlantic Coastline, before those were merged into Seaboard Coast Line, which subsequently became part of "Family Lines," which was bought out by the Chessie System, which then evolved into CSX. The overarching trend has been consolidation. The problem is verification of what occurred when for a specific segment of track.. --Lannie

Thank you, Dan! The history of those old lines is really interesting. Looking back at this shot also makes me appreciate the old Olympus E-20, my first digital camera. With the right light, it could (and still can) make really crisp pictures with only five megapixels. --Lannie

Dan Steele
Landrum, the rail line is shown on a 1917 McCormick County Sanborn Fire Insurance calendar drawing of a town map of McCormick as the Charleston & Western Carolina Ry. You can find this information on Google of McCormick, SC.

Augusta St. Crossing, McCormick, SC 2002 I'd like to know what line this was before CSX bought it. Does any old timer out there know, or know how to find out? Comments welcome.
